Making Films in Law School

Jessica Silbey on the Law Culture blog (4/4/2006)
discusses a conference presentation by Robert
Percival (Maryland) in which students in his
environmental law seminar make short films
elucidating an environmental issue addressed
in class. After she viewed several of the films, she
concluded that they " demonstrated a commitment
and engagement by the students in the legal, political
and social issues that the class has raised... and got [her]
thinking how so many other law school classes might
greatly benefit from this kind of project in relation to
such a small an expenditure of money. "
